Best Free iPhone Apps

They say April shower bring May flowers, so hopefully all the snow that hit the Northeast on Monday morning will make way for the most beautiful May we’ve ever seen. In the meantime, stay bundled up inside and enjoy our roundup of the nine best premium iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free today. One app in particular — FlockEye — is among the most novel apps we’ve seen in a long time, so definitely grab it while it’s free.

This post covers paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. BGR is not affiliated with any developers. There is no way to tell how long they will be free. These sales could end an hour from now or a week from now — obviously, the only thing we can guarantee is that they were free at the time this post was written. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “get,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app anyway, you will be charged by Apple. Subscribe to our feed to be notified as soon as these posts are published, and you’ll avoid missing the sales we cover.
